Welcome to the Fiverr forums.

You only have 8 minutes of read-time shown in your forum profile. Check out the Tips For Sellers category (with filters applied --> You’ll find hundreds of threads offering advice on a variety of things to consider and/or improve. (Note: Not all advice can apply to all gigs or categories. Be sure you check multiple sources as there are some false tips, even among the top threads.)

It takes a lot of work to make it as a freelancer, so be sure to research and plan accordingly.

you are right “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”.so every body should more thinking and more learning for his planning

As a buyer I would be very confused about the amount of work I would get from ordering your gig. “6 hours of work” is very unspecific, and giving some kind of word count or something similar might be more clear.

When a buyers needs to get some data entry done they don’t want 6 hours of work, they want their project to be completed. It would be completely impossible for them to estimate how many hours of work their project would take you to complete.

I would also never buy a service from someone charging less than $1 per hour as there must be something wrong with the quality of work for someone to be willing to sell their time for so little.

All of those spelling mistakes in the gig description and on your seller profile might be problematic since buyers need to be able to trust you to enter data accurately.

It is also worth noting that data entry is a very crowded category and requires little skill. You might have more success in a different category where you have some expertise that most people don’t have.


Thanks for the advice mate!

In all 3 packages “upto” could be “up to”
